The Bishop of Durham, The Right Reverend Paul Butler and The Dean of Durham, The Very Reverend Andrew Tremlett preside and preach over a Eucharist service in Durham cathedral today.
This was the first public worship held in the cathedral since Coronavirus restrictions were eased.
Since Durham Cathedral’s temporary closure in March due to the outbreak of Covid-19, public worship has not taken place inside the church. Instead, members of Durham cathedral clergy have been live streaming Morning and Evening Prayer, as well as Holy Communion and a pre-recorded Evensong service on Sundays.
Members of the public can register to attend by booking online ahead of their visit. Enhanced safety measures have been brought in for the Holy Communion and will run alongside those measures already put in place throughout the church and in line with previous government advice.
I was given access to photograph the service this morning and a few of the pictures are shown below…
